How to Find Arrest Records

CheckPeople.com provides instant access to online arrest records in an easy-to-read report. Online arrest records will show if the arrest was for a business violation, drug or alcohol related, for a violent crime, from theft or robbery, or was a traffic-related incident. Please keep in mind that an arrest does not constitute guilt. People can be arrested if suspected of a crime, and arrest records are always made after someone is detained by a police officer. But remember that guilt can only be determined by a court of law.

Arrest Records Search

Access Arrest Records Instantly

Our arrest records show in-depth, relevant information on those who have been arrested, and each report details the exact offense, the name of the individual who committed the offense and where the arrest took place.

Offense date

The offense date shows exactly when the arrest occurred, rather than a date of a conviction. The date can help you determine how long ago the incident occurred, which can be used to decide whether or not the person in question is a threat in any manner.

Full name

The arrest records display the entire name of the individual who was arrested. By being able to determine the full name, you can avoid mistaking an arrest of someone else under the same name.

County and state

Each arrest record also details the county and state in which the arrest took place. This piece of information can help shed light on exactly why the person may have been arrested in addition to where they may have resided previously.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in an online arrest record?

An arrest record is different from a background check because it simply shows if the subject has ever been arrested. Again, it does not indicate guilt. An arrest record might include all or some of the following:

  • THE SUBJECT'S CHARGE OR OFFENSE
  • THE CATEGORY OF THE CHARGE OR OFFENSE
  • THE SOURCE OF THE ARREST RECORD
  • THE STATE THE SOURCE COMES FROM
  • THE FIRST, MIDDLE, AND LAST NAMES OF THE SUBJECT
  • THE DATES OF THE CHARGES OR OFFENSES
  • THE LOCATION WHERE THE CRIME OCCURRED
  • THE TYPE OF CASE AND THE CASE NUMBER
  • THE NAME OF THE COURT INVOLVED

Can anyone view online arrest records?

Signed into law in 1967, the Freedom of Information Act gives all Americans access to public records, with some exceptions. People can view all arrest records, except those that are still active or are pending.

Some states will also exclude arrest information when the subject is acquitted, expunged, or released because of lack of charges.

Is it free to view online arrest records?

Arrest records often include sensitive information, so fees may be involved with viewing them.

There are usually three ways to look up arrest records: in person at a courthouse or county building, by request, and online. Viewing arrest records in person often costs money, as county clerks charge administration fees. Through the Freedom of Information Act, the FBI can provide specific records for a fee.

Out of all available options, viewing records online is the best way to receive arrest records. CheckPeople.com provides unlimited online arrest record searches for one low monthly fee.
